president of the united states bill clinton in conversation with me and my colleague at cbs nora o'donnell. >> rose: do you think this election the president has said that change has to come from outside rather than in washington, that this election has the possibility of producing a change that will be able to overcome gridlock. >> i don't think it to the only has the possibility, i think it almost certainly will. and let me explain why. i think the president's going to win but let's assume governor romney won. if he wins, that almost certainly means the republicans will hold on to the house and it will be about 50/50 in the senate, more or less the way it is now. you can't filibuster a budget. it's the only thing that doesn't require 60 votes in the senate to pass o as opposed to 51. so a lot of the policymaking will be pushed into the budget and he'll just have to pick up one or two people on that. if you assume that he is going to do what he said he's going to do, i think a lot of his priorities will be enacted. and i think it will be bad on the budget side, as i said. includin
to you. i wish to greet all of the wonderful people of the united states and all of the people who will see your program. at the end of the day, if you do have personal animosity towards me, don't transfer that on to the rest of the people of the united states. we love the people of the united states and they also wish in return peace and stability for all of the world. >> you've come here to make a speech to the united nations. many are saying it's the most important speech of your life. do you feel that? >> translator: no. this is not the most important speech of my life, but i do believe that every moment of a human being's life are the most important for that human being, because they will not come back. if you lose today, today's gone for good. one day of your life is gone. therefore, every moment counts, every moment is important. i have been coming to the united nations general assembly for eight years now, seeking progress and friendly relations with all nations, and the objective is still the same. >> the reason that people think it's so important is that they believe that
of the united states in our region encourages extremism. >> surprising. how would you feel if one of your children dated a jew? and heated. especially when i asked him about basic human rights for gays. >> do you really believe that someone is born homosexual? >> yes, i absolutely believe that. yes. >> i'm sorry. let me ask you this. do you believe that anyone has given birth through homosexuality? homosexuality ceases procreation. >>> good evening. welcome to a special edition of "piers morgan tonight." looking live at new york city, home of the united nations. world leaders from 193 countries are gathering for the annual meeting of the general assembly. president mahmoud ahmadinejad will address the meeting on wednesday. he had blistering words at israel today. more on that in a moment. he took aim at the security council on the subject of iran's nuclear program. >> translator: we have business that some members of the security council with little rights have chosen silence with regard to the nuclear warheads of the fake regime while at the same time they impede scientific progress of o
square. welcome to all of you in the united states and around the world. i'm fareed zakaria. today, mahmoud ahmadinejad, the president of iran. why he doesn't fear israeli attack, why he feels they would prevail in any war and his surprising apology to the people of new york. also on the show, bain capital. mitt romney's private he can quit firm is no longer so private, it is in the headlines, on the campaign trail, on your tv screen. what is it really all about? steve pagliuca one of those that runs the firm joins me. >>> just when we need it most. what is it? i'll explain. >>> and, finally, candidate barack obama of brazil? but first here's my take. president obama has sewed up the -- surged in the polls this week, and republicans have been quick to figure out the problem. mitt romney. peggy noonan said his rolling campaign has been a calamity. shouldn't it puz puzzle us that romney's campaign is so incompetent, given his reputation for, well, competence. after all he founded one of the leading firms, turned around the salt lake city olympics and was a very successful governor. h
seriously, but i was wondering how seriously you take the rhetoric of the president of the united states. president obama said at the united nations that he was determined to prevent iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. do you regard that as a bluff? >> translator: you set forth two or three questions here. i have never used the word "bluff." when we say we do not take it seriously, we mean that it impacts -- it does not impact our policies in the slightest. iran is a vast country, is a great country. let's assume a few terrorists come and assassinate some of our officials. will the country be damaged? >> no.no. a couple of bombs will be set to explode. will the country be destroyed? no. we see the design of regime at the same level as the bombers and the criminals and the terrorists and even if they do something, even if they do something hypothetically, it will not affect us fundamentally, but, vis-a-vis, the expressions of the president of the united states because i do not wish to speak in any way about anything that may be interpreted as meddling with america's domestic or electoral
, a celebrity of the united states instead of the president. >> the president's decision not to meet with the prime minister of israel when the prime minister is here for the united nations session i think is a mistake, and it sends a message throughout the middle east that somehow we distanced ourselves from our friends. i think the exact opposite approach is what's necessary. >> what do you make of the republican view that the president has no time for prime minister netanyahu but time for "the view"? >> prime minister netanyahu is not in new york in the days the president is in new york. the president's not in new york on the days whe prime minister netanyahu will be in new york. the president just recently had a conversation with prime minister netanyahu that lasted more than an hour, i believe, and that was just one in countless conversations that they've had. >> you say that he's got schedules, that foreign leaders have schedules, but the president has blocked out time to appear on "the view" on tuesday. so he has time for whoopi goldberg but he doesn't have time for world lead
world leaders with new slams on israel, the united states and members of the u.n. security council. it was not entertaining. western nations, including the united states, hit iran with tough penalties on the banking system and oil industry amid concerns that they are trying to develop a nuclear bomb. the israeli prime minister binyamin netanyahu is calling for the united states to draw a line on the sand. iran continues to claim their nuclear program is for peaceful purposes. today, the iran president mahmoud ahmadinejad, blasted the united states and others for supporting israel in the first place. israel is what he call add "fake regime." >> we have business that some members of the security council have chosen silence with regard to the nuclear warheads on the fake regime while, at the same time, they impede scientific progress of other nations. >>shepard: president ahmadinejad denied accusations his government is propping up the regime in syria, a regime that is killing its own people. he touched on the deadly american backlash over the amateur video that mocked mohammed saying
to dissociate the united states from that hateful video that insulted the prophet of islam. he said that there are important rights of free speech under the first amendment and we have to protect those rights, and if the government a press free-speech, it makes the world a less free place. he also had a message for iran, that while we want to negotiate through diplomacy if possible, time is not unlimited. that was a warning to the iranian government, which has been obstreperous and very difficult to deal with. i think it was a very important speech the president gave in new york. host: how about mitt romney? can you assess from what you have heard and hear him write these past few months? is there a romney doctrine on foreign policy? how would you encapsulate it? guest: i don't know if there is a romney doctrine yet. governor romney is a very smart, successful person. my guess is that it is not the issue he wants to emphasize in the campaign. once the campaign to be about the economy and the unemployment rate. it is a difficult position for a republican to be running against a democ
at the u.n. as he usually does. at a meeting monday, mahmoud ahmadinejad accused the united states of backing what he called a fake regime in israel. that led to a walkout by israel's u.n. ambassador. >> also monday, a wide ranging interview with us, we ask him about the threat of an attack on iran's nuclear facilities and how his country would respond. >> would you retaliate against the united states if there's an attack by israel on iran? >> translator: well, by the principle of it, i don't take the zionist threats serious. >> they're bluffing? >> translator: we don't even take them into account. i would like to ask you, who's subservient to whom? the united states government to the zionists? which one is which? >> for a country ru you saw you don't take into account, you spend a lot of time talking about them, including here today in new york. you said israel has no historical roots in the middle east and the white house has called that statement by you disgusting, offensive, and outrageous. would you like to apologize? >> translator: do they have roots? if they have roots, then
, in a sense, talking about, like, the 99%. think of, you know, some of the demonstrators m united states or in europe who have also said that the system is rigged against them. there might be some resonance. >> the american delegation, they walk out. clearly, that was not unexpected, but you did have some real power players who are sitting there. he does have a world audience, a wobbled stage. you've got russia wra. you have iran. china. the u.k. many of these other very powerful players here. how do they respond to them him? >> you know, if you look at russia and china, they believe that each country should be loued to do what it wants, and if they want to talk, let them talk. although russia does support the let's say movement to try to limit iran's ability to develop a nuclear bomb, and that would put them on the side of the united states. when it comes to kind of let them talk, they would sit there and listen to it. the united states decided not to even walk out. they didn't even walk in. they issued a statement. maybe we can read that statement if we have it. yes. coming from the sp
on a jet at j.f.k. but first from fox this thursday night. the united states is pulling more staffers from our embassy at libya for security reasons. that is what officials are telling fox news. they say the move is temporary and they hope to send the workers back next week. the u.s. cut the staff to emergency levels after the attack on the consul in benghazi. now fox news has learned that officials are calling it a terrorist attack within the first 24 hours, not one but two sources say investigators suspected a group with ties to al-qaeda was to blame. a few days later obama officials were still telling a different story. >> the best assessment we have today that in fact this was not a preplanned attack. that what happened initially it was a spontaneous reaction to what had transpired in cairo as a consequence of the video. >> based on what we know now and knew at the time we have no evidence of a preplanned or premeditated attack. >> shep: the day after that comment. jay carney said it is i think self-evident what happened in benghazi was a terrorist attack. he says the president agrees.
across the muslim world and delivering a stern warning to iran saying the united states will do what it must do to prevent tehran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. we're going to have reaction to the president's u.n. address coming up in just a moment. first though, brand new stories and breaking news. >> the deadly west nile virus outbreak across our country is now getting worse. with one state hit very hard, the new efforts to stop the virus right in its tracks. >>> wild weather killer floods and mudslides are forcing more than a million folks out of their homes. we're live with that story. >>> plus a new first for the mars rover as its robotic arm reaches out to touch a huge rock on the planet. now the rover on the move again. where it is headed next and why the trip is making history. it is all "happening now.". jamie: first back to our top story, violence in the middle east is centering in the gathering of the united nations general assembly. i'm jamie colby in for jenna lee. jon: the president warning iran that the u.s. will quote, do what we must to prevent the rogue nation fro
on american aircraft over the united states. i don't think that's going -- nothing's going to stop that happening. >> reporter: the u.s. government is not even considering allowing passengers to use cell phones on planes. but officials are looking into whether passengers can use devices like these to read or listen to music during takeoff and landing. american airlines pilots just started using ipads in the cockpit throughout the flight to access maps and other information. flight attendants will also get tablets to use inside the cabin. and consumer advocates say allowing passengers to do the same during takeoff and landing would only be fair. >> it kind of bothers consumers and passengers not so much the fact that they can't make cell phone calls, just the fact they can't use any electronic devices. >> reporter: and he worries one day on domestic u.s. flights dealing with a loud neighbor talking on a mobile phone may be the next in-flight inconvenience. sandra endo, cnn, washington. >> polls show mitt romney's support is lagging in key states. we'll talk with newt gingrich about
a movie. host: look at this and we'll get comments on it. >> it was april 20, 2009 and the united states was opening the antiracism conference in geneva, switzerland, it was designed as a forum to reach the u.n.'s moral authority to end racism and discrimination, strengthening human rights everywhere. racism is a denial of human rights, pure and simple. there comes a time in the course of human kind when we must stand firm on the fundamental principles that binds us. there comes a time to reamp our faith in fundamental human rights and dignity and worth of us all. >> it was only the second conference of its kind in the u.n. 60 year history and as the secretary general concluded his opening remarks the man of united nations delivered the keynote -- tapped to deliver the keynote address wait the wings. >> the time is now, ladies and gentlemen. >> who would it stph-b who would it be, the guiding light who could lead the conference toward achieving its vital goals, who better than this guy,? >> and now to the podium -- >> [applause] >> this is mahmoud ahmadinejad, president of iran. somethin
there are no red states, no blue states, there's just the united states. this is lull class warfare -- absolutely class warfare. it is a manifesto from which he is reading, and it makes clear why he does not like welfare reform as put together under president clinton. it would destroy the coalition that he now has created. megyn: lou, thank you very much. we'll be right back. insulin users test often. freestyle lite can help you test easy. they need a third the blood of onetouch ultra. zipwik tabs target the blood and pull it in. call now for free strips and a meter. till you finish your vegetables.

dangerous country in the world. and the number one threat to the united states is iran acquiring a nuclear weapon. the suggestion by prime minister netanyahu that the united states should set a red line and say in advance that we would use force if iran achieved a certain level of progress in its nuclear effort doesn't make a lot of sense to me. this is a question of war and peace. and both president obama and president bush have tried to say we need to negotiate with iran and have the ability to sanction it and use force if necessary, but you don't want to put yourself into a corner and use force based on actio and a predetermined level as what the iranians do. so i think president obama is right here to resist that. and israel should know that the united states has its back as the president has said and the united states will do what it must do to stop iran. but let the united states make that decision, not some preimposed red line. i think that makes sense for america. >> president obama on " 6/0 minutes" on sunday said this. let's play a clip. >> and it comes to our national security d
officer in the united states government. i have the statement right here. what i believe it does it attempts to give the administration some cover for their initial comments and then concludes what we saw in libya wasn't terrorism. there is a problem here. when you read the statement is what you see is the administration assessments of libya went way beyond what is in the document specifically the statements of susan rice that spun the story that was hijacked by extremists and then launched an assault. we're going to look back on the period and original reporting as really changing the dialogue publicly about this attack. we reported a day after the assault based on an interview with the head of the house intelligence committee in was premeditated commando style attack. then with my colleagues pamela brown, on the 17th after the ambassador wrote his comments, we reported there was no demonstration at consulate when the attack happened. then my colleague bret baier was the first to report that a guantanamo detainees was suspected of having a role into that attack. you make a good
between the united states and iran. americans repeatedly said that the iranian government must change, and -- change behavior. >> translator: sure, but after all, what does that mean. can one country based on their own sole opinion decide and establish a redline for another country and then offer attacks. we have never threatenned them. >> you said you wanted to wipe them from the face of the earth. >> translator: let me explain, we think occupation and war-like behavior and terrorism should be done away with. the killing of women and children should be done away with. the bombardment of houses on people's heads in their own countries should be done away with. have they done anything like this in the last 65 years? no they event. we say to do away with these things. and we have also suggested the solution. we said that the solution is that the palestinian people should decide in a free election for their own country for their own land. >> the last time i had a conversation with you, here, a year ago were after the conversation, you talked in a reasonable way in part about things, and
and iran is able to defend itself. look for delegations like the united states to walk out once again as soon as he starts criticizing israel. bill: there were stunning comments from pakistan's president last night. what was spoken there, jonathan? >> reporter: this is pretty extraordinary, bill. it reported on fox report but appeared to slip under the radar for a lot of media outlets because it was one of the final speeches of the day. just hours after president obama at the same podium called for tolerance and called for leaders of the muslim world to outright condemn the violence against u.s. interests that we've seen over the past couple of weeks, the pakistani president walked up to that podium, failed utterly to issue any strong condemnation of the protest, instead called on the united nations to lead a charge to make illegal for anyone, anywhere including here in the united states, to insult the prophet muhammad. listen to this. >> you can never condone violence. the international community must not become silent observer and should criminalize such attacks that destroy the pea
reported the 67th meeting of the united nations general assembly involves 120 heads of state. >> as the 2012 united nations general assembly gets underway. iranian president is already making news by scolding the u.n. security council. >> the security council has failed to establish justice and ensure sustainable peace and security in the world. >> iran is facing international scrutiny and u.n. sanctions for its nuclear program, with israel calling for action. alaskait may arise tomorrow. the president is also likely to mention the unrest in the muslim world. this morning, secretary of state, hillary clinton, talked about the assassination of the u.s. ambassador in libya and said the world will not tolerate mob violence. >> the people sent this message loudly and clearly on friday. when they forcefully rejected the extremist in their mist and reclaimed the honor and dignity of a courageous city. >> president obama is fielding criticism for skipping bilateral meetings with world leaders, but making time for an appearance on a daytime talk show. >> they have telephones in
time to talk. to your point the united states administration said we still think there is still an opportunity for diplomacy. what you heard from prime minister netanyahu today is that israel is not going to act unilaterally. they are, they feel they are in concert with the u.s. policy at this time. and that they feel that there is a need for the world. he spoke in global terms that the threat that it poses. it will spark an arms race to make the middle east totally tender box for terrorist. >> bret: judge? >> i thought the prime minister netanyahu made a brilliant and compelling, very, very scary case for containing iran. but i disagree with juan. he damned the president with the faint praise. it's obvious he doesn't want the president re-elected. obama has approval rating in the single digit in streets of tel aviv and jerusalem. i take a little different approach here. israel is a sovereign country. it doesn't need the approval of any international body to defend itself. if iranian use of nuclear weapons on israel is imminent under principles of the just war and international
this monday night, a top iranian commander is now threatening to target united states military bases should israel attack iran's nuclear program. iran's president is here in the big sitting mouthing off as ever even after the head of the united nations warned him you better tone it down. mahmoud ahmadinejad in new york city set to speak to the u.n. general assembly this week but oh, today, he enlightened us all with a preview when he said israel is a fake regime that will be, quote: eliminated. >> we have witnessed that some members of the security council with veto right have chosen violence with regards to the nuclear warheads of a fake regime while at the same time they impede scientific progress of other nations. >> shepard: the white house firing back, quote: president mahmoud ahmadinejad's comments are uncharacteristically discussing -- i sudden say characteristically disgusting, offensive, and outrageous. they underscore, again why the u.s. whiment to israel unshakeable and why the world must hold iran accountable to meet its obligations. its fox top story and jonathan hunt is live
. the defense minister pointed out we have best relations between israel and united states of the securities we have ever had. we have operation iron dome which allows the folks in israel to be protected from these rockets. i think it is one of those things that it is election year thing. connell: but the week of the u.n. general assembly, you don't think that's a fair political criticism from the other side? say hey listen, there's a lot going on here in the world, you should have sat down with them, you don't think that's fair? >> i don't think it's fair. he keeps good communications with the rest of the world. our relations with the rest of the world have been better than a long time. when i travel, people were very very pleased with what the administration was doing. they respect the president. look, we're in the last what 40 some days of a presidential campaign. that's the high priority. connell: let's talk about that a little bit before we let you go. the republicans would say look at the unemployment rate under president obama how it's stayed above 8%, this is quote unquote our year, we
the united states will do what we must to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. >> cnn foreign affairs reporter elise labott is with us. what can we expect from ahmadinejad today? will he tone it down or go out as fiery as he always does? >> i think he's going to double down, up the ante, and hear more of the same. previous years he's talked about american officials being responsible for 9/11, talking about that the holocaust never exists. i think he's very sidelined at home. not very strong right now. i think he'd like to use the world stage as a bullying pulpit, if you will, and then when he talks about this new world order, it has a lot of resonance in some of the countries that do feel like the united states and the western countries, the permanent members of the security council, call all the shots. so while he says a lot of things that are, rheric that's very fiery, at the same time, he does have an audience, he's not just speaking for himself. >> people have been asking to tone it down, ban ki-moon -- >> ban ki-moon, u.n. secretary-general said, listen, your last time, w
. of course, his visit, there's always controversy, side stories. the united states has not issued the full complement of visas to the delegation accompanying the iranian leader. about 20 or so according to the iranians out of about 160 people. the u.s. has an agreement with the united nations as the host country for the world organization to allow people to come here no matter the level of dispute. however, the u.s. also does reserve the right at times, especially in tough diplomatic relations, strained relations, and no relations with iran, to not issue visas if it so sees fit. but ahmadinejad has his visa. along with that baggage you mentioned. >> we were showing pictures of the warwick hotel, a posh hotel in new york city. that's where ahmadinejad and his entourage are going to stay. there will be protests outside the hotel later today, right? >> i think so. the warwick has been his latest place of residence. any group that opposes ahmadinejad has always denounced a new york hotel for allowing him to stay there. this has gone on. there was someone who was injured in a bombing who has su
